About Flensted Mobiles
At The Scandinavian Shop we love to celebrate iconic Nordic brands and those traditional crafts which have made a successful transition into the modern world. Flensted Mobiles is a perfect example of such a brand. Although the craft of making mobiles is very much a Danish tradition, the decorative style we see today was born out of an original design made by Christian and Grethe Flensted for the Christening of their first child in 1953. It was a simple affair fashioned from two straws and three storks which Christian had cut out himself but was made with the love and passion that still distinguishes Flensted Mobiles today. Their original design was hugely popular and eventually grew into a full-time occupation for the couple who then devoted their entire life to the creation and production of Flensted Mobiles which have since found worldwide appeal.
Still very much a family business, Flensted is now run by Christian's granddaughter Christine and the mobiles are still designed and made in Denmark by homeworkers on the island of Funen, homeplace of Hans Christian Anderson – perhaps this is why they possess a magical, fairytale quality. Creating a sense of peace and tranquillity, each mobile is as therapeutic as it is beautiful and would be an exceptional feature for any room.
